    2014 has been a big year for innovation on Office 365, with Office Mix, Delve and Sway showing just a few of the ways we’ve added more value to the Office family. We’ve added functionality across other platforms, getting great reviews for the Office for iPad and Office for iPhone apps and moving toward general availability of Office for Android tablets in early 2015. With the work we’ve done, we could easily coast until January, but why stop now? The Sway team recently provided insight behind its development and then expanded the preview to wide availability.

Earlier this month, we let you in on a little secret—that our nation’s letters to Santa go to a small post office in the tiny town of Santa Claus, Indiana. More than 13,000 of these wish lists find their way to Santa Claus (the town) every year where a group of Santa’s Elves—local volunteers who don elfin hats and jolly knitwear—diligently open read and reply to each one. But this year, the Elves did things a bit differently and built a giant, digital wish list…

    Throughout the last year, we have been applying the intelligence of Bing to predict things like the mid-term election results and the NFL playoffs. Bing makes predictions by taking into account a variety of data signals from across the web. Today, we’re happy to bring you our predictions for the finale of NBC’s hit singing competition, The Voice. Of the final four contestants, our data says that the conversation is really only between two: Matt McAndrew and Craig Wayne Boyd. While we can pretty confidently cut the field in half, the race is almost too close to call between Matt and Craig.

The European Union had found that Microsoft used Windows' dominance of PCs to gain users for the Internet Explorer Web browser. Microsoft was required to offer Windows users a choice of browsers to demonstrate the variety of other options available. The agreement didn't go entirely smoothly, with what Microsoft called a technical error that kept the browser selection option off some editions of Windows 7,…

    Yesterday Yahoo! and Mozilla announced a new 5 year partnership to make “Yahoo the default search experience for Firefox in the United States on mobile and desktop”. The deal will make Yahoo! the default search experience on Firefox in the United States, replacing Google. Google and others (including Bing) will still be available as alternate choices, and Firefox will use various other search products around the globe, including Yandex in Russia, Baidu in China, and Google (yes, Google) in Europe. Yahoo! press release does a lot to champion Mozilla’s newfound relationship…
  • Has Microsoft given up on eReading?

    Kip Kniskern
    11 Nov 2014 | 10:09 am
    Microsoft has a long, and not very successful, history with eReaders, going all the way back to Microsoft Reader, which debuted in 2000, but never made it beyond Windows Mobile and was shuttered in 2012. Since then, Microsoft hasn’t delved into the 1st party eReader market, although it has seemingly been ready to make the jump a number of times, establishing a partnership with Barnes and Noble and its Nook reading device in 2012, and for a time letting slip that there was an “Xbox Music, Video, and Reading” team. Nothing has ever come out of either of these forays, however,…

    Microsoft unveiled its first Microsoft branded Lumia phones tonight, the Lumia 535 and a dual SIM equivalent, the Lumia 535 Dual SIM. The phones follow along with Lumia’s attraction to the lower end of the market, offering an affordable phone with an “estimated retail price will be around 110 euros before taxes and subsidies”. There is no word at this point where Microsoft plans to sell the phones, it’s only saying in the press release that it will “begin rolling out to key markets in November”. Microsoft teased the release on the Lumia Conversations blog…

    It seems like Microsoft can't get sexism out of its system, never mind that high-profile apology by the CEO a few months ago for telling women to have "faith in the system" for getting a raise and to trust in karma. Now, the company's Marketing Director for Mobile Devices in India has made a similar sexist slip-up.

    Microsoft is currently fighting a court case in the United States, challenging a federal law enforcement warrant issued for customer emails stored in Microsoft’s Dublin data center. The warrant was first served on Microsoft just over a year ago, and since then we’ve been resisting what we see as an attempt to stretch the bounds of law enforcement authority. Emails are the personal property of our customers and as caretakers we must be extremely respectful of their rights. Of course, law enforcement must be able to do its job, but when the seizure of personal correspondence is necessary,…

    With 23 official languages, the European Union is a melting-pot of diverse and rich voices. And while it may be hard for all of them to be heard among the chorus, the call for one universal language that can drive Europe forward is becoming louder. That language is code. Coding is the key to unlocking Europe’s potential, across every industry, sector and profession. In an increasingly digital world, computer science skills have become the basis for driving Europe’s economies – and not just in the ICT sector. An estimated 90% of all jobs already require some computer skills, while…

(A highlight from the venerable BBC is available here.) As noted, the changes will take effect October 26, 2014, and essentially moves many existing time zones back one hour, and create two new time zones. These new time zones will not observe daylight saving time (aka DST).

    Duane Forrester
    17 Oct 2014 | 2:51 pm
    Authority is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “a person or organization having power or control in a particular, typically political or administrative, sphere”. For our purposes, we also understand that “authority” conveys a sense of trust and influence. Searchers generally want authoritative sources to engage with. They want to be able to trust the sources they visit. Naturally, this means being an authority ranks pretty high on the “must do” lists for most businesses. But becoming an authority, as noteworthy a goal as it is, isn’t an easy task. Some folks simply start…

  • Fix For Windows 10 “Dirty Shutdowns” Inbound

    Fahad Ali
    19 Dec 2014 | 9:15 am
    Microsoft is currently busy taking care of several of the reported issues on Windows 10, and one of the more notorious ones is the problem referred to as “dirty shutdowns”. If this sounds corrupt to you, that’s because it is. Basically a dirty shutdown is when the system restarts spontaneously, which is to say without a blue screen of death as it is called. What happens here is that no crash dump is created, and this makes it all that more difficult to debug. This, essentially, causes a lot of problems, as engineers do not have access to collected data on what causes these erroneous…

Apparently, it is being positioned as an apps and game streaming platform, built atop the Azure infrastructure. Obviously, unconfirmed, officially, but the latest hearsay is that Arcadia replaces the Rio streaming service that has now been discontinued. You can read up on what Arcadia is here. But the most remarkable topic of interest in all this is the fact that the Arcadia team is currently seeking software engineers that have…

Word is that the Operating System Group at Redmond is building this service upon the company’s Azure cloud computing infrastructure. Mary Jo Foley reveals that this new codename is for a new service that replaces the Rio service, which has now been discontinued. Rio was demonstrated more than a year back, in 2013, if you may recall. But at least the Arcadia codename keeps up the line of Halo references…

    Only a couple, really, but Microsoft actually took the time to bundle in an icon or two in Windows 10 build 9901. Shows that the company really is focusing on this side of the user interface. Neat, because the last couple of builds have been without any new additions on the icons front. But as unearthed here, there are a few shiny new additions present in this version of the preview. And these are the new folder icon, a settings gear (which really looks out of place here, with its blue background) and a couple of error or warning signs. However, the important thing here is the look of the…
